MACY helps support canine unit

MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

The Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth presented Marshfield Police with a check to help support their canine unit.

The group raised more than $11,000 in two events: a softball benefit that Newsline 9 played in last summer and a pizza fundraiser in December.

Members of the Marshfield Youth Initiatives said they're happy to help the community.

"It feels good. You know, it's been a two year project, and you know, the youth are a pretty prevalent part of our community. We have a large high school basis, and I think the drug dog will really help them out," said Nathan Borchardt, a Marshfield Youth Initiatives member.

Marshfield Police said the canine unit is valuable in helping keep drugs out of the community. Officials said the money will be used to train dogs and maintain the program.
